Inspiration of Style:

Peplum

 

 I am totally into peplum right now! Its all over the pages of magazines and in dozens of stores. Peplum is a ruffle attached to the waistline of a skirt, dress, or even a jacket.  This style is so feminine but also bold. 

When I think peplum the first name that comes to mind is Victoria Beckham. She embodies ladylikeness yet she has such a bold fashion sense.

This is how you wear peplum and my favorite picks of this fashion-do !

Twenty Dollar Trendy March 2012

I love when Spring it just around the corner and color comes back into the mall and on us again! I know every girl can’t get enough of black, white & gray but after a dreary winter we need to cheer up & spruce up our wardrobe! I am loving the bold colors for this spring & summer but sometimes it is just too harsh without a pattern. This H&M dress for under $20 bucks is a great find & can easily transition you in style thru the spring and early summer with the 3/4 sleeves. Orange can be a hard color for many to wear, especially work appropriate without looking like Halloween…. this paisley pattern is the perfect way to bring you into spring!

 CLICK HERE: Orange Paisley dress, H&M $19.95

Maybe you are looking for a cute shoe to lighten up your outfit …. for less than twenty dollars you can have comfy cute pastel coral flats with the very fashionable ankle strap perfect for the office or weekend from Forever 21.

CLICK HERE: Linen Ankle Strap Flats, Forever 21 $19.80

 

Sometimes you just need a new clutch …wallet by day & purse by night. I love this orange croco pattern from Target.

CLICK HERE: Merona Orange Croco Clutch, Target $14.99

I know a great piece of jewelry can complete an outfit but spending too much on costume jewels doesn’t seem to always be the best way to stretch your dollar … I found a great pair of earrings from Bloomingdales for $20 … I love these so much I don’t know which color is better!?! Coral or Blue!!!! For $20 buy them both!!

Ready… Set… Shop!

Couture to Copy : Pearl Platform Pumps

COUTURE TO COPY:

Pearl Platform Pumps

 While recently browsing the Neiman Marcus website in search of new shoes to lust after I came across the “Pearl-Platform Satin Pump” by Nicholas Kirkwood with a 5″ covered heel . These heels are gorgeous & would add a touch of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” glamour to any outfit!  Can’t you just imagine her in that famous little black dress, sparkly tiara, endless pearl necklaces and these shoes?!?!

 

CLICK HERE: Nicholas Kirkwood Pearl Platform Pumps, Neiman Marcus $995

 

If you can’t part with a grand this month to splurge on these fabulous stilettos here is a great alternative at a substantially lower price-point!

 “Pearla0” by Red Kiss is selling on E-Bay & various online retailers like Shiekh Shoes for about $30 to $60. The red and nude look very close to the Kirkwood heels while the black has silver-toned pearl detail.

 

CLICK HERE: Pearla0 by Red Kiss, Nude $29.99

CLICK HERE: Pearla0 by Red Kiss, Red $29.99

 CLICK HERE: Pearla0 by Red Kiss, Black $29.99

 

I believe every girl can wear any shoe, and how can a pair of pearl platform pumps not be part of your shoe collection? Sure I want to have the original pair of pumps for $1,000 but for under $100 I can have a pair in all 3 colors…. I’ll be expecting a very large box in the mail very soon & my collection will be one step closer to closet-heaven!

Twenty Dollar Trendy Feb 2012

TWENTY DOLLAR TRENDY

FEBRUARY 2012

 

I have been looking lately for a structured bag in a neutral tone that looks polished enough for life in the corporate world but still says I have style, love my designers and own the latest trend.  But I love my bags like I love my shoes which means I have too many to wear and it makes justifing $1,000 on one purse hard at times.  I love how Payless Shoes features some great designer collections like Lela Rose & the fierce Christian Siriano. His clothes are amazing and his ever changing collection at Payless keeps me coming back for more! This crossbody bag in Navy/Tan is a STEAL at just under $20 so when the fashion changes or I beat this bag up & it is on to the next at least I know I looked good while it lasted for just Twenty-Dollar Trendy!

 I love my IPhone 4S! I’ve had an IPhone since the original & I could never switch to any other phone. The IPhones are big & boring looking even though their technology is amazing! I love the beautiful Sworavski crystal encrusted IPhone covers that cost $300 each but I’m too rough and know I’ll damage that in a matter of weeks! Now there is a cheap solution to that boring case problem!  For well under $20 you can get a blinged out IPhone case from Charolette Russe in clear & pink crystals with a big heart!!!      

CLICK HERE: Bling Heart IPhone Case, Charlotte Ruse $9.50

   I <3 this 

 I love a good statement necklace but I do have my classic Tiffany necklace that tends to be a staple item worn on an almost daily basis which is why I hate to spend too much on costume jewlery. I also noticed gold-tone all over the Fall 2012 Fashion Week runway so thought a great way to add in this bold trend & still stand out was on a great neckalce! For under $20 you too can get this fashion statement and update your wardrobe!

Happy Shopping!

COUTURE TO COPY

We all know the greatest fashion houses create some of the best shoe designs but those designer duds can cost a pretty penny. While I sometimes splurge on the real thing, my budget cannot cover my shoe fetish at a thousand dollars a pop.  I love walking through Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus just as much as I love to browse through the racks at Target and Ann Taylor. I believe a girl should always invest in good staple items such as the sexy black stiletto, a polished nude wedge, the perfect ballet flat, a basic black pump, a chic pair of boots and glamorous summer sandals…. but let’s be honest, I love shoes too much to only own a few pairs in the closet, even if they are all high-end designers. This brings me to the “Couture to Copy” section of my blog where I will show you a fabulous designer shoe & if it isn’t in your budget but a must-have of the season where you can find it for less but still just as stunning.
